Catherine Middleton was born a commoner but now has become a royal. As a Duchess, she does not outrank a Princess so she will be 'subordinate' to Prince Andrew's children even though they are the issue of a commoner. I believe that Kate will outrank them all though when William ascends to the throne as she will be the Queen Consort to King William V (should he choose to be crowned under that name).|

She's known as a Duchess now but isn't she a Princess as a result of her marriage to a Prince? If William ascends to the throne, I think she will outrank them in spades! |
Meanwhile, I wish them exactly what 13LuckyLady wishes them, which is what I would wish any other pregnant couple.

"Kardashian? Kardashiam? Karda... you know the people I mean. Who are they and from whence did they spring? Why are they?"|
These are questions Americans continue to ask. We're sick of them. I think they've become known because they have a stage mother who's been relentless about getting herself and the family in front of cameras. I believe Bruce Jenner and the late Robert Kardashian are the only members that did anything worth recognizing.
Months ago I read that once William becomes King he intends to rule under the name of George, presumably in honor of his great grandfathers. I have no idea if there's any truth to it.

It was reported a few weeks ago that Kim Kardashian sent Kate Middleton a gift of clothing from her "Kollection" and it was returned. The media generally described it as a snub, but it seems to be protocol - everything Kate wears has to be bought and, I believe, approved. I'm not sure a mid-thigh skin-tight dress in leopardskin print is Kate's style, though. |
I've also read that Kate can't accept unsolicited gifts, but that didn't seem to apply to William when a strange woman in a crowd gave him a newborn one-piece.

I think that is wonderful!|

I think it's brilliant. William is so like his mum and she would have been so proud of him. Kate is a lovely girl and perfect for the Royal family. Her acute morning sickness must have been horrendous but seems to have got better. |
